Self Edge, SF/NY/LA/PDX - updates & info

Recommended Posts

that's the first pair of women's jeans on here that i've actually though, "maybe that'll work for my girl"... you have any measurements for those? and what's the price tag like? my girl's best fitting jeans are her black gap skinnies. i'm really looking for something that'll fit like those but have some decent quality to them. we just got her some levis online that look horrible, so no more jeans from them...

The Sling & Stones jeans go for $260 a pair, $350 for the selvedge ones..

the slim ones are quite slim, similar to a slim kim below the thigh, but with a little more room on top.. they run a size big, so i normally suggest people size way down in them.. like a size or two if you're used to Japanese denim. If you're used to Gap denim then get the same size or maybe one size down if you want a super tight fit.

i don't know a thing about girls' sizes. she's got a size 1 in the gaps. i'm sure these sling & stones go by waist size. thanks for such a detailed response, kiya

I've been home in SF for over a week now, and I'm too lazy to go visit. I'm going to change that tomorrow. Since the online store ain't up I guess I'll physically take myself there... :)

guys... honestly, the online store is pretty much ready. we're waiting for our Imperial shipment. once that arrives next week we're launching the site offering imperial, then adding a new brand every 10 days or so.. Iron Heart, Homeroom, Sugarcane, Flat Head, etc.. in that order. :)

free insured worldwide shipping, orders ship same day, etc..

Sorry to crash the party, but $ 265 for the Sugar Cane Union Star? Did I read that right? Are the prices on Sugar Cane this insane because History Pres. is acting as wholesaler and north amer. rep? What gives?

Yes. Just like the Okinawas are $300 (same as they were at BiG and at HP).

It doesn't bother me at all, I just don't understand why anyone would pay 265 dollars for something they can have shipped from Japan for about 100 dollars less. I guess that 100 dollars is the tax for being too stupid to figure out how to sign up on Rakuten.

yeah, the repeated build up and promotion as well as the fact that it was supposed to be up three months ago makes the current offering of rather anti-climactic. Hopefully now that it is up and running there will be frequent updates of new products.

Sometimes there is a difference, but, as I will clearly explain, in this instance there isn't. Assuming that the savings by using rakuten is $100 and the extra time it takes to sign up for the service is 15 minutes (roughly how long it took me) and assuming no other costs, then it is simple to determine whether the issue is laziness or stupidity.

If our hypothetical jeanshopper is employed and makes a sum greater than or equal to $100 every 15 minutes, or $400 every hour, then it may be explained as laziness: he would gain nothing by spending those extra 15 minutes, and if he makes more than $100 /15 min. he is actually losing money by signing up with rakuten. If, and this is the more likely scenario, our hypothetical jean shopper earns less than $100 every 15 minutes, then it is stupidity, because he will have to work more than 15 minutes--the very sort of extra work that the truly lazy abhor--to make up that $100.

Obviously, this math will be different for the indepentally wealthy, those on a fixed income, and welfare cheats, but it should apply to most everyone else.

Is it just me or is there something off about the guy modeling the jeans?? ;)

Assuming you're in the States, you would be able to get them faster from SE, and if you need to exchange for a difference size it would be easier and cheaper... If you can figure out the right size and fit and cut by reading the charts on the Japanese site, more power to you, and you should order them from Japan.

      Worn probably 10-12 times, barely any fades. For those who've been around these forums for a long time, they remember how awesome these jeans were when they first came out.
      Retail was $375 USD. Looking for $185 USD OBO.
      Best way to contact me is [email protected]
      Waist: 31.5"
      Inseam: 31.5"
      Thigh: 11"
      Hem: 7.5"





      One of the most popular jeans we've carried since we opened was the first collaboration we did with Dry Bones and Superfuture two years ago. We've decided to expand on the theme of a forum based jean with a bigger project including Styleforum and a 22oz denim that Dry Bones have woven for this jean. 

      The SEXDBXSXS12 jean has been produced by Dry Bones, one of Japan's longest running vintage Americana style denim manufacturers. The jean is made up of a rope-dyed 22oz unsanforized selvedge denim consisting of a combination of Texas & San Joaquin Valley cotton fibers creating a rigid denim that's slightly hairy, but not slubby, because we requested that the denim not be singed and calendered. The indigo dyed yarn has a sulfur top to create a super dark indigo color that crocks fairly easily with normal wear. The jean has heavy-weight hickory striped pocket bags, military grade green rear pocket linings, coin pocket selvedge, cotton poly-core stitch, hidden rivets, and two leather patches. The Superfuture patch was designed by JimmyC of Superfuture and the Styleforum patch was designed by Brian SD, you can easily remove one of the two patches leaving the one you like better. The fit is a slim fit with with a bit of taper and a medium rise, graded to look great in all sizes.

      Superfuture, a website dedicated to the finer points of shopping, traveling, garments, and more was launched in 1999 by Wayne Berkowitz. Hailing from Australia, the website took on a life of it's own within a few years, and five years in was already home to one of the largest databases of information about garments, and to be more specific, denim.
      Superfuture offers the world a frequently updated set of traveling maps, a listing with reviews of over 1000 shops around the world which are "Superfuture Approved", a blog updated with cutting edge events around the world, and a forum called Supertalk which at times overshadows the other services Superfuture offers.

      Styleforum was founded in 2002 in reaction to the poorly run, corporation-owned, men's style discussion forums of the day. Founder Jeremy Jackson and his partner Fok-Yan Leung, who started posting on the forum as a way to procrastinate from writing his doctoral thesis, see Styleforum as a dive bar populated by guys who also happen to really like clothes, often to the point of obsession. A few discussion rooms have been added to the forum since 2002, discussing anything from travel to food, but these are still guys who want to be wearing the best clothes no matter what they are doing.

      This jean is limited to 250 pairs between our three stores, once sold out there will be no restocks.

      IRON HEART 633s size 32 - imgur link photos taken by a window with natural light. 
       
      I've been wearing these for close to 2.5 months now. The waist has gotten a bit too big on me and I find that they fade too slowly. They're still more comfortable at 21oz. than most raw denim I've ever worn, though. 
       
      Whiskers are starting to break through, wallet fade is fairly clearly defined on the back left pocket, and while the comb wrinkles are fairly defined, there's almost no evo on the combs, knees, or thighs. These have so much life left in them that your wear will surely overshadow mine in the long run. 
       
      At 36" these are ready to be hemmed to your desires. I have not washed them since purchasing them. 
       
      Measurements (the [iron Heart](http://www.ironheart.co.uk/forum/index.php?topic=2835.0) way):  
      Waist: 17.5" across  
      Front Rise: 10.5"  
      Rear Rise: 15.5"  
      Thigh: 12.5"
      Knee (13" down from crotch seam): 8.75"  
      Leg Opening/Hem: 7.6"  
      Inseam: 36"  
       
      Asking **$200 OBO**.
